Kwimu and Sinum Ku, Vikings, are coming back on their ship. Their grandmother tells them a story. When they find things from the story, they think it is real. It makes them want to go back out to sea.
This is an adventure story.
Some of the names of things were hard to say, which throws me off when I am reading.
I picked it because the cover looked cool. At the beginning it seemed a bit boring, but it got better. If I had read the first book, I would have understood this one more. What I didn't like about it is that it was boring at times.
This is the first book in a fantasy trilogy that weaves Viking and Native American legends.
There are elements of Viking tradition and folktales woven throughout the book.
